Matt Flynn Injury: Seahawks QB Has Sore Arm

Matt Flynn is currently in the middle of a quarterback competition with Russell Wilson, but in addition to battling Wilson for the starting job, he's also dealing with some arm soreness. Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Flynn didn't throw during Thursday's walk-through.

While appearing on "The Bob and Groz Show" on ESPN 710 in Seattle, Bevell said Flynn currently has soreness in his arm. After starting the first two preseason games, Flynn was expected to come off the bench Friday against the Chiefs, with Wilson making his first start.

Flynn signed with Seattle this offseason after spending the first four years of his career as a backup in Green Bay. He's completed 17-of-26 passes during the preseason for 102 yards.
